Came for the school

We came to the cooking school and enjoyed it. Was organized, clean and informative. We ate our own cooking so a review as a restaurant might not be valid. :)

Had reservations for wife's birthday. Arrived early. Waited in bar. Only one bartender working. Waited 10 minutes to get drink. Reservation time comes and goes. Not seated half hour past reservation time. Ask host to be seated and get seated. Wait 20 minutes with no one coming to our table. Finally gave up and walked out. Went next door to... More

Comment by my guest " It was so good!!!" says it all. The fresh salmon presentation was different but delicious. The ham and Gouda cheese flat bread pizza more than lived up to its reputation. The setting, service and food made for a very relaxing and enjoyable lunch. Highly recommended!

The restaurant was recommended by a friend for the food and wine. We dined on the deck which had a nice view of the lake. 3 couples who love good food good wine and a nice vibe enjoyed our experience. The plates are simple in presentation but the farm to table concept outweighs the presentation. It can get warm if... More

This place was outstanding! We had the spirits and wine tasting first, walked away with a great bottle of wine. Went upstairs and had a wonderful meal. If I ever visit Canandaigua again, this will be my first stop.

Overall, this is a nice dining experience. The restaurant (called the Bistro) is on the second floor and has outside seating with nice landscaping and a glimpse of the lake to enjoy. If it's busy, you may not enjoy the sitting so close to others, but it is a balcony and to be expected. Inside seating is available too. They... More

The location and outside seating was great and service was also a plus. The cocktails on the menu appeared to be delicious but they were not up to standard. We had to return them - our waiter was very understanding and removed it from out bill. The food was delicious! My husband's dish was cooked to perfection. My entree was... More

My husband and I ate here on our first night in Canandaigua. We were not disappointed. We were seated quickly, had great service, tried the recommended wine and thoroughly enjoyed our meal. If you get a chance I would highly recommend taking one of the classes offered at the center. We were delighted to get a reservation for the Chef's... More

I have never been here for a cooking class, but I love the food in the upstairs bistro and have enjoyed the variety of tastings in the tasting bar on the main floor. They always have a creative menu and mixed drinks. There is also a great little gift shop and info desk to learn more about what goes on... More
